Been thinking ....which is dangerous.......since seeing Tom post his recent acquisitions of moulding planes that it might be interesting to have a go at making some.
Got to thinking about the profiles and thought one way to do this would be to do a group project.
So here is what i thought do you think this is possible and would anyone be interested.
Find someone on our forum or outside vendor that makes custom mouldings with a moulder machine.
Have an agreed selection of moulding profiles run on some stock suitable to be cut into sections to make planes.
So i presume this would be say 4 or 5 inch high by anywhere from 3/4 to 1.5 inch wide and then lengths to suite the group number. So say 4 or 5 guys participate then one length of say 6 ft moulding would be required.
This is then cut up into sections and distributed as a set after the series of profiles are run, to each participant in the group.
Each of these sections would form the basis of a moulding plane for the individual participant to make.
For blades I am still thinking of a solution but thought why not throw the idea and concept out there see if there is any input and interest from our Neader group.
